November 2016 is right around the corner – while there is a lot of attention on the presidential race already, many lower-profile races have significant influence over North Dakotans’ quality of life. In particular, the state legislature makes a lot of decisions that influence NDHRC’s major issues and that particularly impact the state’s native, LGBT, immigrant, women residents.

The good news is that we have a lot of opportunities to interact with the candidates for the legislature. The next time you do, ask them the following questions, and let us know what they have to say.

On May 11, 2016, the North Dakota Human Rights Coalition (NDHRC) voted to urge a “No” vote on Measure 1 on the June ballot. A “No” vote on Measure 1 would ensure that North Dakota does not open the gates to corporate farming operations. We believe that allowing corporations to own land and use it explicitly for small-space animal confinement farming practices poses a significant risk to the human rights of North Dakota farmers and community members.

Northern Lights, winner of the Camera d’Or for Best First Feature at the Cannes International Film Festival and many other prizes around the world, is a classic American independent film. Against a backdrop of a bitter winter on the Dakota prairie and the equally brutal economic forces of 1915, a story unfolds which pits small Midwestern farmers against “the powers that be” - bankers, railroad men, big grain dealers and an entrenched political machine.

The Evening of Possibilities is an annual event held by the North Dakota Human Rights Coalition (NDHRC). This year, NDHRC has invited a number of state legislators to speak about legislative possibilities pertaining to human rights issues in North Dakota.

Come enjoy light Hors d'oeuvres and a cash bar, meet with NDHRC Board members and state legislators, find out how to join the coalition, and socialize about human rights issues impacting North Dakota.

What is Senate Bill 2279?
 
It is a bill that adds sexual orientation and gender identity and expression to the already existing North Dakota Housing Discrimination Act and North Dakota Human Rights Act. Current law makes it illegal in North Dakota to discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, national origin, and age. This act would extend current law to prohibit unfair treatment on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity and expression as well.
